Why make essential oil sprays?
Creating essential oil sprays is a simple, cost-effective way to make your essential oils last longer. Diluting essential oils with water to create a homemade spray allows you to maximise the life of your oils, and enjoy them for as long as possible!
Not only do they smell amazing, essential oil sprays can also be used for a number of wellness purposes - from reducing stress and anxiety to improving sleep and much more. Plus, they make a beautiful (and affordable) gift idea for your loved ones.
How do you make your own essential oil sprays?
Making an essential oil room spray is simple. First, you’ll need a small spray bottle. Next, you’ll need something to emulsify the oils and distribute them evenly, so add a small pinch of Epsom salt to your bottle.
Once you’ve added your emulsifier, simply add a few drops of each of your chosen essential oils. Give the bottle a gentle swirl to mix everything together, then fill the remainder of the spray bottle with distilled water and shake to combine.
